Kmail fail "akonadi ... not operational" [SOLVED}


Booting after the latest update to mysql, Kmail failed to proceed with the message:

“the akonadi personal information management service is not operational”.

Near the end of the error report (the saved one, not the error display) was the line:

stderr: "/usr/sbin/mysqld: Error on realpath() on ‘/var/lib/mysql-files’ (Error 2)

Creating the directory /var/lib/mysql-files has fixed the problem.

For background see

but note that it is a missing directory, not a file.


Thanks for your post. It solved my problem, that KOrganizer couldn’t start.
Sorry for my english.
